I hate to say it, but this is a price to pay when you aren't "in with the flock".
If the Jeep in question was a Mustang or a Camaro, they'd be all over it with goodies, tech, and warranty stuff.
See, it's not so much that they don't care about your bud, or other Jeep owners, but it's the "sheep" make up 95% of their sales.
(A perfect example of "sheep" bragging rights(?) is in the aftermarket aluminum intake market. $100 can get a darn nice street intake manifold for the small block Chevy. Try pricing one out for a Cadillac 472 or 500ci. Go ahead, I'll wait for you............
While he's doing that.....OT, but pertinent to the above example; Anyone have one for the Ford 4.6 yet that is a reasonable
price? $700 is NOT reasonable for an aftermarket street intake manifold for a domestic engine thats been around for nearly 15 years now btw, and thanks but no thanks.
Either that, or they just don't give a rat's colon about Jeeps.
